A newly-delivered, a pregnant, or a breastfeeding woman making up for the missed days of fast

Q 2: My wife gave birth to a baby during the last ten days of Ramadan, and so she broke her fast on some of these days. But she did not make up for these days, out of negligence and ignorance, until the next Ramadan. Kindly guide us, what should she do now? May Allah reward you with the best.

A: Your wife should make up for the days on which she broke her fast in Ramadan, and should also pay Kaffarah (expiation) for her delay in making up for the fast. She must pay half a Sa` (1 Sa` = 3 kg. Approx.) of wheat, date, rice, or similar staple food of the country. (Part No. 9; Page No. 71) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions.
